    Could you tell their ears were missing the tips before you killed them? I havent run into that yet.

    No, it usually only shortens the ears by an inch or less. But when you're stacking ears in your mind, that shortage will compound itself in overall length.

    An inch in ear length will make alot of difference and is why I wondering how big ears normally are in NV. I will try using their face too, thats a good idea. Now I am wondering if their faces are the same size. lol Antelope have got to be 1 of the hardest animals to judge.

    They are for sure. The BC site has a good tutorial on judging them, and that's mostly what I use. I've not read Mike Eastman's book, so I'm not sure if it's along the same lines or not.

    Had to check mine, 6 1/2" base to tip. Giant buck teeth and 1 horn, kept saying "Garsh" and "aww Shucks" before I harvested him. Came from a unit just south east of Yours MM.

    Imagine if you found a big with 8" ears and the visible part of his horns was double that. We would be talking 17+" horns
